I've been GOOSED...

Grey Goose, to be more exact. Last night. MLB All-Star Game.

Genius here decided to drink quality vodka instead of beer. "It's too hot for beer," says I. "A nice Voddy and tonic will give me an appetite, so I'll eat enough dinner, and they say quality vodka won't cause a hangover, the way cheap vodka will and it's a weeknight, and I don't want to be hungover at work."

Good thinking. Unless you drink 7 pints of it.


My eyebrows hurt.

Oh god damn it, I hate those times when my eyebrows hurt. It's even worse when you wake up because your liver is screaming at you.

I went for lunch with some friends on a boat one Sunday (tattershall castle). Thought I'd have a couple of drinks with it. Five hours later we had drunk the bar dry of tequila and staggered into london to find more. After another four hours I lost the power of speech and my vision wasn't going well either. Next I was hurled out of Waxy's (great bar) and was on the northern line going south (not good considering I live north). By 1am, after some serious adventure I was home. I proceeded to wake up my housemates by staggering around the house trying to be quiet then fell into a drunken sleep.

I sobered up in the shower the next morning and the hangover hit me at about 11am while I was at work.


Even after all that my eyebrows didn't hurt. I doff my hat in respect at your crazy hangover. No retreat no surrender.

Serves you right for drinking a girl's drink like vodka. A good bourbon will kick your head unconscious before you have enough of it to produce a hangover.

You should get an eyebrow massage. The Argentinians are usually good at giving them since they usually only have one eye brow.

Hangovers suck. I wish I could find a way to the effect without the aftermath...

Hydrate too while imbibing, even the good stuff in large quantities, or it's still the same doom at a higher price point.

But my dear--pish tosh, you've turned into quite the pansy wuss drinker at your advanced age. I consumed at least a gallon of vodka by myself this past friday, and not uncoincidentally, also saw Cote. The hangover WAS gnarly, I'll admit, but really, the eyebrow pain was negligible. It was trying to keep the back of my skull from popping off that was well, not so pretty.
